A busy Christmas season for U3A Oliva

A busy Christmas season for U3A Oliva

THE run up to Christmas has been particularly busy for the members of the U3A in Oliva. It all started with the 10th Anniversary celebration in November, since then the choir has sung at a Carol Service in the Church of the Borgia Palace in Gandia and a number of choristers have also sang in local bars.

There was a fantastic Christmas party for underprivileged local children, where each child got a present from Santa, all generously donated by a large number of members.

The event of the season, was undoubtedly the Christmas Glitter Ball, held at the wonderful MoliCanyar Restaurant in Potries. A great meal and entertainment from Disco ‘Elegant’ was topped by a surprise visit from Santa together with Mrs Claus, who presented the raffle prizes. The raffle raised over 400€ for our nominated charity.

The choir will also be singing for the old folks in a local home, just before Christmas.

Christmas day and as an alternative to sitting around putting on the pounds, a number of members are going on a walk in the countryside surrounding Aielo de Rugat and top that off with a picnic lunch.

The normal groups resume the week after Kings’ Day and in January they will be hoping to start some new groups, so anyone interested in zumba, walking football, wine tasting or photography, please do not hesitate to contact via their website www.u3aoliva.wildapricot.org or via our facebook group.
